Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Top ten Live shows attended Non-Dead/Top ten live Albums of all time

Doors -- Winterland '67 (one of those "perfect nights")
Jefferson Airplane -- K.C. Ks '68 (Jack starts the show with a 15 minute solo, the crowd begins to glow, and it only gets better)
Allman Bros. -- K.C. Mo. '68 (the real deal)
Jimi Hendrix -- K.C. Mo. '68 (Wow !)
Rotary Connection -- small town '69ish (exceptional performance, in fact, classic)
Savoy Brown -- K.C. Mo. '72ish (Sweet beyond belief !)
Hot Tuna -- K.C. Mo. '72ish (Papa John goes off)
Frank Zappa -- Seattle '74ish (audience full of teenagers expecting Yellow Snow, what they got was something else, I imagine many awoke during the next few nights sweating profusely, and crying for mommie)
Frank Marino -- K.C. Mo. mid '80's (this guy can really play)
Molly Hatchet -- small town '95ish (only 50 people show up, turns into party, the band wails for 3 hours, and doesn't miss a lick)

10 already ? hardly a dent in the magic vanishing memory machine.
